leads to all-round greater self-confidence

Parent and Children's Group
These groups facilitate the parent-child relationship, which is often at the heart of behavioural problems or
low self-esteem. The principle behind the group is to
have faciliated and creative one-to-one time between
a parent and child, in a group setting. It gives the
child a dedicated period of attention from their
parent for one hour and at the same time
provides that parent with their own space to be
seen and supported in a creative environment.
The positive effects of this upon the two
participants also has an important influence
on the current and future siblings.
